    ****   John Byars,   according to material from that which was sent by Ann Mellard to Dorris Lagow, is listed in the DAR roster of Revolutionary ancestors. Material from "Mississippi Daughters & Their Ancestors," 1965, Nancy Parkes, pg 67; quotes as follows: "The petition of JOHN BYERS TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY SAYS: that on the 17th day of June last he marched a company of militia from the county of Louisa consisting of fifty men and after he arrived at Hillsborough in the State of North Carolina he had his horse and saddle taken from him into public service by THOMAS WASH, forage master to GENERAL STEVENS' BRIGADE and GENERAL GATES, which seizure took place on the 16th day of August, the day of the defeat of GENERAL GATES, etc. Concluding the petition is a certificate signed by Thomas Wash, chief forage master, and JOHN LUMSDEN, assistant forage master. Also attached are affidavits from WILLIAM MALLORY and JOHN HANCOCK that the horse was worth fifteen hundred pounds of current Virginia money, signed in the presence of Waddy Thompson, justice. The petition was dated 1782."

    In an exerpt from another publication, "of the Washington County Historical Society [VA]," They quote the following ". . . According to papers in the Virginia State Library, Captain John Byars, 'On 19th. of June 1780 marched a company of militia from county of LOUISA, comprising 50 men,' arriving later in Hillsboro, N.C. (See B 2058, also. Vol. 8, pgs. 220-21.)"
